Hi – just noting areas where we are still finding issues with the new summary reports. At this stage, we believe the old summary reports still serve us better. It would be useful to get feedback from other users and SurveyGizmo on these issues:
No ability to set/change the chart type for textbox questions:
- This was an option in the old summary report and we could choose to display answers to text box questions in a chart (appreciate that this may not be something that is widely used) – can this be reinstated?. We use this because we import certain respondent data i.e. office location into the survey (within the contact fields) – this conforms to a standard format, using a set of standard values so can easily be charted as there are only a limited number of possible responses – leaving it free text means we don’t have to set up and maintain dropdown lists on an ongoing basis (as this is a long running survey, not a one-time survey). We used to be able to chart this, now it only shows as a word cloud which is meaningless (the biggest word is ‘office’!), or a list for the summary table, which doesn’t look great.
Thank your feedback regarding this functionality. Our Development Team is exploring expanding the charting options within the Standard Report and the open text options will certainly be looked into.
Thank you again for taking the time to post this on the Community!

Thanks so much for sharing, we also are having similar issues with the Standard report and I’d love to hear how other users are able to implement these reports.
Have you tried the DIY Response Grid? It is most similar to the Advanced Appendix we used to use in the Legacy reports. I think it works well for short text box answers, so if you just need to display the office name or something short, it may work for you. I like it better than just printing the summary table
Hope that helps!
